Cavities, technically known as dental caries, are damaged areas of a tooth that develop into holes over time. There are several steps you can take to limit the incidence of cavities:
- Brush your teeth for two or three minutes, three times a day, especially after meals
- Floss between your teeth at least once a day
- Use toothpaste containing fluoride
- Limit sugary foods and drinks
- Visit Orange Beach Family Dentistry every six months for a checkup!
